The boat is awesome.. The crew are really nice and extremely helpful (thanks Alex). It is amazing to be actually on a moving boat as it pulls away from the harbour in the dark. Alice and I sat on the top deck in the rain (it wasn’t very heavy but it sounds dramatic…. Lol) and enjoyed the refreshing breeze after the heat that seemed to cling to the air.
Alice and I are sharing a very small cabin but that can’t dampen the exhilaration felt by the whole crew which adds to our excitement as it was unexpected for everyone to be so positive and enthusiastic. I’m extremely impressed and can’t wait to start our exploration tomorrow. J
I’m extremely tired as I only got about 2 hours sleep last night and unlike Alice I didn’t sleep on the plane so Happy New Year 2009.
Oh and Bridget by the way the carpet is an aqua colour. Lol J
